Q. My pool water test kit was new last year. Do I need new bottles? (You know, the red/white bottles!) A. If you have a test kit that uses the bottles of OTO for the chlorine and Phenol Red for the pH tests, yes you do need to replace these. If you use DPD tablets for the chlorine test, replace these every three years as well as the Chlorine Neutralizer (No 4) bottle. (Note-if you would like to bring us a quart sample of your pool water (after the filter has been running for at least 48 hours) we'll run a complete test with our ACCU-SCAN analyzer.
Fast and and accurate in-store testing of your pool water. Accu-Scan can test for Free Chlorine; Total Chlorine; Bromine; Biquanicide; Cyanuric Acid; Total Alkalinity; Calcium Hardness; Copper and Iron. And, best of all, we do it for FREE!!!

One of New England’s premier quintets, Arcadian Winds, will perform on Friday, June 10 at 8 p.m., at the Ellison Center for the Arts on St. George Street. There is no admission charge. The program will include a mix of contemporary and traditional music: Wapango by Paquite D’Rivera, Suite Bergamasque by Debussey, the Carmen Suite by George Bizet and Alterseelen by Richard Strauss. The Debussy and Strauss compositions will be heard in arrangements by Mark Miller who plays clarinet with the group. They will be joined by the Bay Area Youth Symphony Woodwinds in a performance of Malcolm Arnold’s Trevelyan. Arcadian Winds was founded as a woodwind trio at Boston University in 1987. Two years later it expanded to become one of the most respected woodwind quintets in the region. It has premiered more than 50 new works by contemporary composers. Members of the quintet are active in many other musical groups in the Boston area. There will be an opportunity to meet the performers at a reception after the concert.

Mistrial in rape case
A mistrial was declared in the sexual assault case involving a Duxbury man. Plymouth Superior Court Judge Linda Giles declared a mistrial on June 2 when the jury was unable to reach a verdict after initially denying defendant Scott Bone’s motion for mistrial, according to court documents. Bone was arraigned in Plymouth District Court in October of 2008, and the case was later moved to Superior Court. The charges involved two sisters and stemmed from incidents during the summer of 2000-2001 and the summer of 2005. The defense successfully motioned to sever the two incidents before the first trial began. The first trial dealt with

the newer accusations, and on Dec. 16, 2010 he was found not guilty of three counts of rape of a child with force. A second trial started on May 31 of this year, dealing with a charge of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14, brought by the older sister of the girl who originally accused Bone of rape. Bone’s attorney Kevin Reddington made two oral motions, one for a required finding of not guilty and one for a mistrial, and Giles denied them both. However, the jury started deliberating on June 1 and could not reach a verdict, so Giles declared a mistrial. The case will be continued until June 28 for a status update. Reddington did not return phone calls left on Tuesday seeking comment.

Town looks at zoning rules
The Board of Selectmen have decided that Duxbury’s zoning bylaws need an overhaul and this week they appointed a new 10-member committee to tackle the issue. Selectmen invited local boards and committees who work with the zoning bylaws to their meeting Monday night to discuss who should be on the committee and its purpose. After a lengthy discussion, selectmen voted unanimously to appoint the following to the Zoning Bylaw Review Committee: Mary Steinke, Paul Boudreau, Scott Casagrande, Bob Fitzpatrick, Martin Desmery, Freeman Boynton, Jr., Fred Clifford and Judi Barrett of the Zoning Board of Appeals, Nancy Johnson of the Design Review Committee and an as-yet unnamed Planning Board member. Selectman Ted Flynn said he felt such a committee was necessary after he attended a meeting with the town counsel that reviewed lawsuits against the town and learned that a majority of the cases involved the zoning bylaw. “There is language in the zoning bylaw that is subject to misinterpretation, not by our boards, but someone who could go and sue us, and as a result, I thought is was probably time to review the whole zoning bylaw and try to eliminate any areas that are subject to misinterpretation,” Flynn said. “It is apparent to me that the approach that we’ve had over the last few years in trying to repair and put bandaids on the bylaw can create a conflict with another section of the bylaw,” said Selectmen Chairman Shawn Dahlen. Dahlen wants to make the zoning bylaw clear enough that everyone interprets its meaning in the same way – residents, boards and committees. “I thought the better thing that we could do for the residents of Duxbury is to fix the bylaw so that any individual can know what they can do and what they can’t do, get a straight answer from a board or committee, and have that be the interpretation of everybody who reads the zoning bylaw,” said Dahlen. “Ideally, the average resident should be able to read the bylaw and understand what it means.” The charge of the zoning bylaw review committee, as outlined by Dahlen, will be to review the zoning bylaw, gather information from local committees, town officials, residents and developers about their experiences with the zoning bylaw and then recommend an improvement plan by Jan. 1, 2012. Dahlen wants the committee to focus on improving the following elements of the

bylaw: clarity, internal consistency, organization, permitting requirements and procedures, administration and enforcement procedures, and consistency with statutory changes. The ZBRC can also look into other areas it feels need recognition and change. The ZBRC is accountable to the board of selectmen and will be required to keep selectmen informed of its progress; it receives support from the town hall staff as chosen by the town manager. Those who attended Monday’s discussion included past and present ZBA and Planning Board members as well as local residents. No one voiced opposition to the committee but many agreed that reviewing the zoning bylaws was a challenging job. Planning Board vice chairman George Wadsworth said the zoning bylaws originally came out of the town’s Comprehensive Plan and he urged selectmen to remember the plan’s executive summary when revamping zoning. “As we think about changing the bylaws, we should keep in mind those points,” said Wadsworth. “Basically, the bylaws should represent the community at large and what they want,” he added. The Planning Board is in the beginning stages of updating the 1999 Comprehensive Plan and Town Planner Tom Broadrick said this process could take up to 12 months to complete. The updated plan will contain the latest census information, he said. Former ZBA Chairman James Lampert said as its first task, the committee should discover the problems with the zoning bylaw. “The first thing is to find out where the problems are,” said Lampert. “I know (Director of Inspectional Services) Scott Lambiase has a list. I’d expect the Planning Board, ZBA and Conservation Commission to have a list, too.” Former ZBA member Sally Wilson said she thought the timeframe Dahlen had proposed was too short. A previous bylaw committee that began in 1971 did not finish until 1973 and cost $100,000 for consultants, she said. “I don’t see this taking one year,” said Wilson. “I think it will take two.” Dahlen said the recommendations of the committee may require hiring a consultant to work with the bylaw but that information won’t be known until the committee begins its work. Upon his announcement of the members he’d chosen for the committee, Dahlen was greeted with discussion on whether the members were representative of the community as a whole. Cindy Fiorini of the Planning Board thought the makeup of the proposed committee

was too heavy with “east of Route 3A” residents and felt there should be more representation from other areas of town. Dahlen said that he had no geographical bias when suggesting the names of the proposed committee members, adding that none of the people who applied lived in the western part of Duxbury. Dahlen had chosen nine people to serve on the committee, but selectmen decided on a 10-member board, adding Nancy Johnson of the Design Review Board at the urging of its chairman Sarah McCormick. Johnson had applied to be on the ZBRC.

Respite important for caregivers
Research indicates that every caregiver needs respite time if he or she is to last. It may be hard to think of yourself and your needs at this time, but if you don’t, your life will be consumed by your duties and you will burn out. Respite (a temporary break from responsibility) is not a luxury, it is a necessity. It is for that reason, the Duxbury Senior Center began Intermissions, a supportive day program for those with early stage Alzheimer’s disease or a related form of dementia. This unique program provides caregivers with respite while their loved one enjoys a day filled with meaningful and enjoyable activities. With support from the Ellison Foundation, Curtis Foundation and the Friends of the

Council on Aging, we offer Intermissions every Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This program has been created to be stimulating and fun! Each week, participants start their day with a continental breakfast, then participate in a current events round table and then move on to either a fine motor/gross motor activity or memory enhancing game. The group then enjoys a delicious lunch in Café Ellison, and then works it off during a lively exercise class. The highlight of the day is a “special” activity that takes place each week. The participants’ favorite special activities include a poetry circle, a field trip, live entertainment, intergenerational programming, cooking and arts and crafts classes. At 3 p.m. out-of-town participants are picked up by their loved ones while Duxbury res-

idents have the opportunity to be taken home on SADIE, our senior bus. Thanks to Caren Harrison, Respite Program Coordinator, Lucille Brogna, Program Assistant and our dedicated team of volunteers, this program has flourished. There is nothing more rewarding than hearing laughter from the participants and seeing the caregivers feel refreshed when they come to pick their loved one up at the end of a busy day. The cost of the program is $40 a day. To learn more about the specifics of the program and admission requirements, please call Caren Harrison or Lucille Brogna, respite program coordinators at 781-9345774 ext. 107 or Donna Ciappina, outreach coordinator at ext. 105.

Selectmen sign beach lease
The Board of Selectman have signed and executed the lease of Duxbury Beach, which costs the town $400,000 annually. This money is used by the beach’s owner, Duxbury Reservation, Inc. to maintain the beach, especially after storms. Reservation President Margaret Kearney said it cost over $150,000 more than the lease figure to repair the beach after this winter’s storms. Selectmen also learned that this year more sections of the beach will be closed to bathers longer into the summer because of the endangered piping plovers. Duxbury Reservation president Margaret Kearney said that spring storms have washed away piping plover nests, so more parts of the beach will be off limits to humans as the endangered bird species renests and raises its young later into the summer. Last year, the birds did not encounter the same difficulties and the babies were mostly fledged and gone by July 4. This year, the nests may be on the beach into August, said Kearney. In order to keep the birds safe to raise their young, people are not allowed near plover nesting areas. Kearney noted that every time plovers

ALSO AT THE MEETING, SELECTMEN: • Learned that the operator of the North Hill Country Club, Pilgrim Golf LLC, has satisfied the requirements of the town regarding the issue of a security bond, or its alternative, which was raised at the May 9 selectmen’s meeting. Attorney Robert Galvin, Jr., said that Pilgrim Golf has obtained a letter of credit and it is in the process of closing on it with the bank. Town Counsel Robert Troy called the letter of credit “satisfactory” as surety to the town. • Reappointed Jill Cadigan-Christenson to the Zoning Board of Appeals and reappointed ZBA alternates Paul Boudreau and Dimitri Theodossiou. • Granted a liquor license to the Duxbury Beach Preservation Society for its annual fundraiser dance on August 6 from 8 to midnight at the beach pavilion. The party will feature summer resident Rod Walkey’s band, The Barn Dogs, who played at last year’s party to great reviews. • Granted a liquor license for the Island Creek Oyster festival on Sept. 10 at the beach pavilion and another liquor license for a fundraiser Sept. 9 for the Friends of Haiti. It is expected that over $250,000 will be raised at the oyster festival, which goes toward the Island Creek Foundation. • Voted unanimously for an event permit for the July 4th parade and celebration. Organizers said they are still in need of donations this year as costs have risen. The 2011 parade marshal will be former Selectman Betsy Sullivan. • Voted to execute historical preservation restrictions on the Isaac Keene Barn at Camp Wing because $90,000 in Community Preservation Act funds were used for the first phase of the restoration of the property. • Announced there will be an amateur radio field day at Plymouth airport on June 25-26. Information is available at the selectmen’s office. • Invited the public to a Forum on Nuclear Safety and Duxbury Emergency Preparedness on June 15 at 7:30 p.m. at the senior center.

been nesting in the artificial habitat on the bay side of the beach, which keeps them safer from spring ocean storms.

Fatal crash on Franklin Street
lice Chief Matthew Clancy. The female operator of one of the vehicles, Susan Durant, 58, of Middleboro, was seriously injured and was transported to Jordan Hospital by the Duxbury Fire Department. Durant later died of her injures at the hospital. Police did not release many details of the accident, although Clancy said that no citations or charges were given at the scene. The circumstances of the accident are still under investigation by an accident reconstruction team, he said. “We do a thorough investigation of any crash resulting in serious injury or death,” he said. Earlier in the morning, Duxbury and State Police, with the assistance of Pembroke Police, arrested a 16year-old Woonsocket Rhode Island youth after the boy allegedly drove at a Duxbury officer and fled at a high rate of speed, according to Chief Matthew Clancy. At approximately 2:30
continued from page one

a.m. on Thursday June 2, a Duxbury officer was conducting a traffic stop on Kingstown Way with another vehicle when a blue Chrysler Sebring with four teens inside sped towards the officer as he was walking back to his cruiser. The officer needed to quickly move out of the way to avoid being struck. “This car sped up significantly and seemed to drive at the officer,” Clancy said. “He had to move with purpose.” He said the car was not stolen, but the teens inside may have been in an earlier chase with Woonsocket police. “These kids were all very well-known to the police down there,” Clancy said. Another Duxbury cruiser was pulling up to backup the officer on the initial stop and witnessed the Chrysler narrowly missing the officer, Clancy said. The second patrol car then attempted to stop the Chrysler which did initially stop after a short distance. When the officer approached and asked the op-

erator for identification, the unlicensed operator sped off at a high rate of speed. Duxbury police then pursued the vehicle onto Route 53 north into the town of Pembroke when the Chrysler struck a curb and became disabled. Once the vehicle became disabled the driver and one passenger fled into the woods. A State Police canine unit was called in and located both suspects in the woods. The operator of the vehicle was placed under arrest and charged with a multitude of criminal motor vehicle violations, including speeding, failure to stop for a police officer, marked lanes violation and operating to endanger. Clancy said police are still considering additional charges. The three other teens were eventually released and will not face charges.

Duxbury Clipper

Urban Henry Ludwig Bobseine of Duxbury died May 26, 2011. His wife of 65 years, Anne Jouett Bobseine, predeceased him a year earlier. Mr. Bobseine was born in 1919 on a farm in North Otto, N.Y. Starting at an early age, he and his two brothers, Howard and Elmer Bobseine, helped their mother work the farm. In 1926 the family moved to Cattaraugus, N.Y. Following his graduation from Cattaraugus, High School in 1937, he worked on ore boats on the Great Lakes, in factories, on farms, and with the Civilian Conservation Corp. Prior to the U.S. entry into WWII, Mr. Bobseine joined the United States Marine Corps where he became an expert rifleman and later a rifle instructor at Parris Island, S.C. After two years in the USMC, he became an officer and a pilot in the United States Navy. In the USN he flew anti-submarine missions in both the Atlantic and the Pacific. After the war he remained in the U.S. Navy Reserves for 25 years, retiring as a Lieutenant Commander. It was during the war that Mr. Bobseine met and married his wife, Anne Jouett, a WAVE in the U.S. Navy. After the war they spent their honeymoon hitchhiking across the country. They both attended and graduated from Syracuse University under the GI Bill. Mr. Bobseine also did graduate work at New York University. He first worked at American Express, but most of his career was spent in the steel industry working in sales for US Steel and Eastern Stainless Steel.

Urban Henry Ludwig Bobseine

A passionate outdoorsman, Mr. Bobseine enjoyed skiing in the winter until the age of 78; fly fishing and sailing in the spring and summer; and hiking and hunting in the fall. His retirement years were spent traveling with his wife, sailing, skiing and enjoying his four children and many grandchildren. Mr. Bobseine leaves his son, Mark Bobseine of Duxbury; three daughters, Ellen Jones of Vero Beach, Fla., Kathie Khederian of Plymouth and Terry Bobseine of Gilford, N.H.; and eight grandchildren. Contributions in his memory may be made to Syracuse University, Military Officers Association Of America Scholarship Fund, and The Society For The Protection of NH Forests. A private, outdoor memorial service will be held in the fall.

Grads connect with technology
continued from page one

Kevin Casey told his fellow graduates, parents, family and friends. “The Internet, especially through Facebook, has pushed the Class of 2011 closer together than ever. Facebook has become a place where events are planned and garner excitement, a place where classmates can share details such as college acceptances openly and excitedly, and overall, it’s a place where students can learn about their fellow classmates in a different light. “I can tell you, truthfully, that we don’t have bad social skills; if anything they are quite advanced,” Casey added. “Our online connection serves only as a basis for our interaction, not the whole.” Superintendent of Schools Benedict Tantillo, speaking at his first Duxbury graduation

ceremony, also talked about the technology-saturated world the graduates will be entering – noting that a computer played Jeopardy this year. “The world is drastically changing at an ultrafast pace,” he said. “You will have to become lifelong learners to be successful.” At the same time, he urged them to “get a life” and to keep their priorities straight. “Don’t forget the human side in life,” Tantillo said. The ceremony was not without its lighter moments. Greer Cully urged her classmates to treasure and learn from even the most embarrassing of memories, and Greg Bray showed the lessons that can be learned from the movie Toy Story. “Our time here is finished, and we must move on. Now it is time to seek out our

new home, just like Woody, Buzz and the great Mr. Potato Head,” Bray said. Illustrating the togetherness of the class, several speakers made inside jokes, drawing peals of laughter from the graduates and puzzled smiles from family members. The speeches at the graduation ceremony were excellent, as always. But Harry Katz of the Duxbury Interfaith Council urged the Class of 2011 to turn those words into action. “We cannot merely pray to root out prejudice, we already have eyes with which to see the good in all people,” Katz said. He urged the students to “do instead of merely to pray, to become instead of merely to wish.” Student speaker Jonathan McKinley expressed a similar sentiment. “We can choose to simply jump over these hurdles ... or we can break right through them as we make our mark on this world,” he said.

were struck by how welcoming Duxbury has been. Reymond said that she read about the AFS program in a newspaper. “I really wanted to do an exchange,” she said. “I like traveling and seeing other countries ... and meeting new people.” Reymond applied for, and received, a prestigious scholarship for the exchange, a program developed jointly through the governments of the United States and Germany. As part of the program, she has to attend a couple of trips and tours – she’s been to the Statehouse and walked the Freedom Trail, and she’ll spend some time in Washington D.C. before she returns to Germany. She’s interested in going into early childhood education – she’s taking a class at DHS that works with the Magic Dragon Preschool. “I have a little brother, I like little kids,” she said. “They tell stories, they ask lots of questions.” Uribe came to this country for a more extra-curricular reason. “I wanted to get into a more musical society,” he said. “In Chile there aren’t many opportunities for music.” He plays guitar, but has played mostly percussion in the DHS orchestra – although he did get a chance to play guitar in the pit orchestra for a musical. “I’m not going to study [music] at college, but I’m going to dedicate a lot of my life to it,” he said. Both Reymond and Uribe have been studying English since elementary school in their home countries. Uribe said his English education wasn’t very intense

Both also said that the American educational system is very different from their home countries. “You have a really close relationship with your teachers [here], they’re more like friends,” Reymond said. Uribe said that in Chile, more classes like art and music are mandatory. At DHS, he’s done more writing assignments than he’s used to, as well. “Teachers move from class to class, instead of the students moving,” he added. As anyone visiting a foreign country would find, both students experienced some culture shock coming to Duxbury. Reymond said that she held some fairly ugly stereotypes about Americans before she spent a year in Duxbury. “They’re really nice, they’re really open and friendly,” she said. “We think fast food, big people, football.” Reymond has also bonded

Conservation talk on Blairhaven
Gill urges group to deal with building, parking
A group studying the former Blairhaven property continued to look at the details of how the property will be restricted, although one member urged his colleagues to deal with the “elephants in the room,” the looming questions of parking and whether or not the town will keep the existing buildings. The Blairhaven Study Committee continued to finalize details for the property’s future use ahead of a July 1 deadline, when the town will buy the former church retreat using Community Preservation Act funds approved – albeit with some controversy – at March’s annual Town Meeting. Much of Wednesday morning’s discussion focused on the conservation restriction that will be placed on the property. Committee member Pat Loring, who has extensive experience dealing with such restrictions, prepared a template document for the committee. Loring said that the state has to sign off on conservation restriction, as well as the Board of Selectmen, and that it is difficult to change or amend once it’s put in place. “You can’t budge that document,” she said. “This is the important document,” added Chairman Betsy Sullivan, who noted that any rules and regulations this committee put in can be changed by future boards of selectmen. Duxbury currently has 33 conservation restrictions, and while they are granted by the town most are administrated by the Wildlands Trust, a private nonprofit based in town. Loring said this is an unusual arrangement, but Conservation Agent Joseph Grady said it is beneficial. “It’s a huge burden off the town,” he said. “It’s a great method that the town has employed to monitor these, probBy Justin GraeBer, Clipper editor Justin@duxBuryClipper.Com

ably the last 20 restrictions.” Grady said the town has typically paid the trust a onetime fee of between $6-9,000. That money is used to fund an annual inspection of the property and to handle violations. A conservation restriction bars the land from being subdivided for house lots in the future. It also outlines what is and isn’t allowed on the property. “If you’re the CPA you’re protecting the property from future subdivision and for the purpose for which it has been purchased,” Loring said. She added that signage would be important, because it would outline who owns and manages the property and what is allowed. Committee member Michael Gill pointed out that the conservation restriction can take months to pass at the state level, and that it likely won’t be in place before the town closes on the land July 1. He said that the committee needed to deal with the “two elephants in the room,” whether or not the town would keep one of the two large buildings at Blairhaven (the other will be demolished) and what kind of parking there will be on the site. “The conservation restriction is a fundamentally different document if the structure exists ... we can’t finalize these things unless we confront and address, and perhaps finalize,

these issues,” he said. Although the discussion at Town Meeting centered around “passive recreation” uses such as picnicking, the committee is considering allowing a former dorm at Blairhaven to be used as an outpost for the harbormaster, or for town document storage and meeting space. The board is meeting weekly before the July 1 deadline, and the next meeting will be June 15 at 8 a.m. in the Mural Room at Town Hall.

A visit with Gary Magnuson
ary Magnuson is a busy father of two, juggling family and work responsibilities with those as chairman of the School Committee. On the heels of DHS graduation, the Clipper caught up with Gary and talked about everything School Committee-related, from bullying to the building of the new high school.

Chairman of the School Committee

By sarah CouGhlin Clipper ContriButor

just two measures that do not tell the whole story. We are kicking off a strategic planning process this month. As part of this process, I hope we will establish a peer group of schools that we will measure ourselves against using a variety of measures over a period of time. Additionally, as part of the strategic planning process we will define “stretch” goals for our schools that will be based upon improving academic performance. Has bullying been brought up? If so, how has the Committee been involved in implementing policies and punishment for acts of bullying? Last year the state passed legislation that required all school systems to have a Bullying Prevention plans and policies. We formed a task force composed of teachers, administrators, and members of the public to develop the plan and policy, which was approved by the School Committee in December 2010. I was the School Committee representative on that task force. There are detailed procedures for the reporting of incidents, monitoring, and responding to bullying in the plan. How do you feel about iPads and Kindles being used as part of school curriculum? I think bringing current technologies into the classroom and the learning process is essential. Kids pick up new technologies very quickly, and using technology is essential in academics and in the workplace. We recently saw a fantastic demonstration of how we are using iPads as educational tools with special education students. How do you balance your responsibilities on the School Committee with those as a parent and as a professional? It’s a challenge. I have a demanding job, and I take my School Committee responsibilities very seriously. Thankfully, my employer encourages community involvement, and family is very understanding about my work and School Committee commitments. Much of my School Committee work is done at night, weekends, or early mornings – which encroaches on family time. I also believe that we have five highly competent School Committee members who can represent the interests of the School Committee as a whole. As a result, it’s not necessary for all School Committee members to attend every meeting and event that relates to the schools. What is the most enjoyable part of your job as Chairman of the Committee? Visiting the Chandler School and reading to the Kindergarten children.

at what we think is best for the schools. You were involved in the decision to choose a new superintendent; what was important to you in the person selected? I felt we needed a strong educational leader, a good communicator, and someone with a strong record of improving academic achievement. Finding a new superintendent that could recruit, develop, and retain high quality teachers was also important. I am pleased that we were able to find Dr. Tantillo and I believe he is off to a great start. Hiring a new superintendent has allowed us the opportunity to bring in a leader with new ideas and best practices from other schools. What kinds of issues are at hand in Duxbury schools, and how do they differ among the elementary, middle, and high schools? Thankfully we have quality schools, but there are always opportunities for improvement. For example, we are implementing new curriculum frameworks across the grade levels that will improve connectivity between grades and also bring greater project based and interdisciplinary learning opportunities. I would like to see an enhanced focus on STEM initiatives (science, technology, engineering, and math) from the elementary to high school levels. As a first step, DHS is offering a robotics class for the first time this fall. Budget challenges are always prevalent, as we are operating in a difficult economic environment so we need to allocate our limited resources efficiently. How do you feel Duxbury’s school system compares to other towns on the South Shore? Obviously, comparisons depend upon the schools and the measures you are using for comparison. When I look at comparisons, I look at how we stack up against the best schools in the state. Duxbury has high performing schools; though if you look at certain quantitative measures like SAT and MCAS scores, we have some work to do if we want to rank as one of the best. However, these are

What experience/qualities do you have that make you a successful person in this role? First of all, to be a successful School Committee member, you must have a passion for improving the quality of the education for all the kids in the Duxbury school system. You need to be good listener, communicator, and collaborator. You need to keep an open mind to consider differing points of view, and have the confidence to make difficult but informed decisions. Problem solving, organizational and administrative skills are also important. Over the years my professional and nonprofit board experience has allowed me to practice all of these skills. What do you hope to see the building of the new high school bring to Duxbury? I hope that the building will become a community resource that will be the centerpiece of our academic campus. It should be a building that we are proud of and will serve the educational needs of our kids for many years to come. The School Building Committee is doing a fantastic job, and I am confident that the final design will be impressive, functional, but also fiscally responsible. How does the committee come to an agreement on controversial issues? All School Committee issues are discussed in public at our meetings. Many times the members are in agreement on issues, however occasionally there are differing views. You can listen and respect other opinions, but need to vote in a manner that you believe is best. The majority rules on split votes. When split votes occur the members need to back the decision of the majority. You can’t take differing votes personally, we are all volunteers, working hard

adly, I wasn’t invited to be the commencement speaker at this year’s Duxbury High School graduation. It’s too bad, because I had this speech already prepared. Members of the School Committee, superintendent, distinguished guests, friends, family, those people in the back with the beach balls and air horns, and last but certainly not least, the members of the Class of 2011, thank you for being here today. There is no more exciting time in the life of a young man or a young woman than today, high school graduation day. It’s a cliché to say that today all doors are open to you, that all paths are unblocked and that you can truly do anything, but it will never be more true at any point in your life. To quote the unofficial poet laureate of dreamers: “Oh, the places you’ll go.” You’ve spent the last four years changing, learning, transforming from teenagers into young men and women. Before you got to high school, the potential was always there, but you weren’t ready for it yet. Now you’ve learned and matured enough to be ready to pursue those dreams. And this is the time to do it, whether your post-high school aims include college, a career, or the military. This editor can tell himself that he can still do anything, but the chance of being the closer for the Boston Red Sox is probably a long shot at this point. (Bad rotator cuff, they tell me.) But you, graduates, are young, energetic, you have your health and your whole lives ahead of you. There really isn’t any goal that is unreachable if you put your minds to it. Today, there really isn’t any reason not to pursue a dream. You might become wildly successful. Maybe you invent the next iPhone in your garage and become a billionaire. Maybe your band gets discovered at a local karaoke night and you sell a gazillion records. Maybe you’ll win the Nobel Prize or become the next Brad Pitt. But the point is, the choice is yours. –– J. Graeber

His letter explained why it was imperative that we get answers to many important questions whether a Fukushimatype accident could happen here; and answers by “qualified, independent a u t h o r i t y, not the NRC, Entergy, or industry representatives.” Duxbury Emergency Management immediately responded to the call, along with the town’s nuclear advisory committee. On June 15, Wednesday, at 7:30 p.m., DEMA and DNAC are hosting an important forum with four of the nation’s leading independent nuclear safety experts – those very same experts often quoted by major media outlets such as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CNN and asked to testify

Experts to answer questions on Pilgrim ––––––


to Congress. The panelists include: • David Lochbaum: Director Nuclear Safety Project Union of Concerned Scientists; formerly NRC; nuclear reactor operator for 17 years; consultant. David is one of the nation’s top independent experts on nuclear power, widely published and frequently invited to testify before Congress. • Dr. Gordon Thompson: Director Institute for Resource and Security Studies; a national and internationally respected expert on spent fuel pool issues; currently an expert witness for the Mass. Attorney General on Pilgrim’s spent fuel pool and NY Attorney General. He has an extensive list of clients and publications. • Arnold Gundersen: Energy advisor, 39 years of nuclear power engineering experience;

former nuclear industry senior vice president and licensed reactor operator; appointed first chairman by the legislature of the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant Oversight Panel; expert witness numerous licensing cases, including Pilgrim on leaks from buried pipes/tanks and the unfiltered vent system. • Paul Blanch: Nuclear Engineer with 45 years of nuclear power experience, beginning as a Navy submarine reactor operator and instructor; named “nuclear engineer of the year;” currently an expert witness in Pilgrim’s, Seabrook’s and Indian Point’s license renewal proceedings. • Entergy Representative: awaiting confirmation. The public will be given opportunity to ask questions after their presentation. Don’t miss this opportunity; mark your calendars – June 15, 7:30 p.m. at the Duxbury Senior Center.

hat is going on here? On Tuesday, May 17, we attended an open meeting of the Duxbury Agricultural Commission. The commission discussed whether to harvest hay at the Bay Farm, which would involve planting as early as this fall. We were shocked and dismayed by the disregard for the recent Town Meeting decision against this kind of management of the Bay Farm land. One member of the Commission stated that Town Meeting vote “doesn’t matter” and that the commission is still considering leasing out the fields to a farmer. If leased, the land would be altered for at least five years with extensions issued by the town. Also

Hay at Bay Farm revisited? ———————


discussed was a “compromise” including potential restrictions and redirection of the trails allowing motorized vehicles to drive across Bay Farm, endangering walkers, kids, and dogs. Surprisingly, several commission members described the soil as “unhealthy” and in need of agriculture to eliminate the “invasive species.” It is hard to imagine plowing under the field with heavy machinery being used as a remedy. As described in the 2009 Duxbury Conservation Commission map, Bay Farm is a “rare coastal meadow” that has evolved through the years. Take a walk there today and see the beautiful spring flowers, butterflies and birds. Once plowed under, it will be gone

forever. The Bay Farm was purchased by the town of Duxbury with the express anticipation that it remain open space for recreation, to the delight of the public. Full access is integral to the enjoyment of the area. Should the town lease out the Bay Farm to a private enterprise? The people of Duxbury voted 182 to 80 against agriculture at Bay Farm. Why is the decision reached by voters at Town Meeting now unimportant? Does your vote count or not? Lilly Cleveland Washington Street Sheila Lynch-Benttinen, West Street Carole Bolsey, Kingston

Dedicate roundabout to Shea ———————
[This letter was originally sent to the Board of Selectmen – Ed.] e are writing to respectfully request your support in dedicating the Rte. 14. roundabout to the late Joe Shea. It hardly needs repeating, but Joe was a tireless volunteer for the town of Duxbury who lent his considerable talents to a myriad of worthy projects, large and small. These include the roundabout, as well as the new crematorium and the recently restored World War Me-


morial. We served on the War Memorial Committee with Joe and observed his tenacity, passion and goodwill firsthand. After careful consideration and conversation with other members of our committee, we have come to the consensus that naming the roundabout after Joe is the most appropriate way to memorialize his legacy. We are not seeking an additional sign as this area is already visually congested. Rather we believe that a rock or stone in the center of the roundabout with an engraved panel recognizing it as the “Joseph G. Shea

Roundabout” is the best way to proceed. As this is a not a town road, we will need authorization from the state. We ask you to forward this request with your endorsement to our legislative delegation to seek whatever necessary state approvals are required. If fundraising is necessary to pay for the rock and engraving we are happy to assist in whatever modest cost might be incurred. Thank you for your prompt attention. Josh Cutler Pamela Campbell Smith

uring June, International Elder Abuse Awareness Day is celebrated all over the world. Despite international efforts to decrease elder abuse since 2006, the incidence has been rising. Yet, the actual number of cases is thought to be under reported, because of reluctance on the part of the elderly victims, and others who are aware of their plight. The topic of elder abuse is an emotional one, a subject that many find so painful that they do not want to address it. The fact that elder abuse is actually going on in our town is even more painful. To reduce the pain we must do everything we

can to stop the abuse. Prevention is the best means of stopping elder abuse. This requires that each of us know what constitutes elder abuse and that we be mindful of how our behavior may affect the emotional and physical health of an elderly person, adjusting our relationships to meet the highest standards of behavior toward others. By law, elder abuse is defined as either deliberate acts, or acts of omission, that result in physical, sexual, emotional, or financial injury to an elderly person, i.e. anyone who is 60 years old , or older. You can learn more about elder abuse on Thursday, June

23, at 10 a.m. OCES (Old Colony Elder Services) will present an overview program on Elder Abuse Awareness at the Duxbury Senior Center. The public is invited to attend. For for information call 781-934-5774. Pam Smith St. George Street

The writing was on the wall for the Red and Blue of Natick, as the Dragons were scoring at a goal-a-minute pace in the opening 12 minutes. It took Paul Hellar just 20 seconds to give the hosts a 1-0 lead, and Andrew Buron followed 1:20 later with a shot to the top left corner that beat goalkeeper Doug Dube for a two-goal advantage.

The ease with which the Dragons controlled play was a testament to Duxbury’s ability, as Kane Haffey, Bryan Barry, and Hellar would beat Dube over a four-minute span for a 7-0 lead. By the time the first quarter ended the Dragons were in possession of a 10-0 lead with Seamus Connolly getting on the scoring sheet and Haffey adding two more to his total. Despite the insurmountable lead, everyone tried getting into the scoring act and junior midfielder James Burke wasted little time, putting one past Dube just nine seconds after the second-quarter faceoff. Connolly and Hellar added two more goals in a two-minute span to make it 13-0, while

Barry put some mustard on his shot at the 7:04 mark, whipping a shot around his neck to make it 14-0 at the half. Coach Chris Sweet held back his troops in the third quarter, as Barry and Haffey made it 16-0, with the bench coming on in the final 12 minutes to give the regulars a break. The Dragons now get ready for their second game of the tournament when they take on Lexington at 5 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon in Duxbury. The No. 6-seeded Minutemen (14-5) knocked off No. 11-seeded Brookline, 1710, in first round action.

quire almost no space and, once established, are inexpensive to maintain. As bees search for nectar, they pollinate plants. Placed strategically, beehives can as much as double some fruit and vegetable yields. In this way, a beehive can be a boost to a whole village.” Not bad for $30. I’ll add a little local knowledge gleaned from the beekeepers at the Marshfield Fair. All honey starts out local. Bees forage no more than 3 or 4 miles from their hive, so all of their honey and wax are intensely local. Without them, there would be no cranberry crop, or much of anything else botanical. Honey is nearly impossible to spoil, not matter how long it is stored, and needs no refrigeration. Thus (getting back to HI locations) a family in a tough part of the world can use or sell honey with a minimum of expense, and no refrigeration. Now about that camel. They’re not cheap. At $850, a camel is the most expensive single-animal gift on the list. You can buy a small herd of water buffaloes ($250 each) for the same price, but how will you keep a water buffalo without, you know, water? HI’s camel story: “In parts of the world too dry for other livestock, Heifer is providing families with camels and training in their care. Camels not only provide transportation, but they also produce milk that families can drink or sell – a tremendous asset for families living in harsh and unpredictable regions. One family that has been helped by the gift of a camel is that of Sabina and Isaya Shakwet of Tanzania. They live in the rural village of Mkuru with their three children. Heifer supporters helped send 12 camels to their village, providing families like the Shakwet’s with milk and transportation. Through Passing on the Gift, there were soon 26 camels in the community.” Passing on the Gift is one of Heifer’s 12 “Cornerstones.” Families (often the wife or mother) that receive an Heifer gift agree to pass on the first-born female to another family. “As people share the offspring of their animals – along with their knowledge, resources, and skills – an expanding network of hope, dignity and self-reliance is created that reaches around the globe.” It sounds rather heady for a tough-minded world, unless you think such ideas really are important and universal. Heifer recipients do. “In Rwanda, Christine Makahumure showed the true meaning of passing on the gift,” reads another story on the Web site. “In 1994 genocidal war that raked Rwanda destroyed everything Christine had. She saw her son and husband shot to death when they were caught in a crossfire. When the fighting ended, Christine was barely able to feed her daughter and parents. But then she received a Heifer cow. The milk supplemented the family’s meager diet, and she was able to buy a small home with income from selling milk. Christine gave her first calf to a neighbor – but she didn’t stop there. She provided money so her neighbors could build and apply for their own Heifer cow. And she adopted four war orphans and became a living example of passing on the gift.” You can read similar stories on the Heifer International Web site, but I had to stop. I have a deadline, and I couldn’t read through my tears. I did stop to wonder, though, whether Christine’s village could use some honeybees. They deserve something sweet.
